These guidelines were adapted from the original guidelines
developed in 2004 to clearly define the roles, responsibilities,
and expectations of the consultant and school. It is particularly
critical to distinguish the Centers of Excellence program (and
the role of the consultant and school) from accreditation (and
the role of program evaluators and schools) since these
